Complex Adaptive Systems Group Homepage A Complex Adaptive System (CAS) is a system which is composed of very many interacting components or agents. Generally speaking, the behaviour of these individual agents is simple, local, and well defined. However, the global or emergent behaviour of the system as a whole can be very complicated and may appear to exhibit some form of intelligence or ability to adapt or react to changes in the environment. Examples of Complex Adaptive Systems abound in the natural and synthetic world. Examples include markets, economies, societies, brains, cities, ant colonies, telecommunications networks, and immune systems, to name but a few.

Many natural systems (e.g., brains, immune systems, ecologies, societies) and increasingly, many artificial systems (parallel and distributed computing systems, artificial intelligence systems, artificial neural networks, evolutionary programs) are characterized by apparently complex behaviors that emerge as a result of often nonlinear spatio-temporal interactions among a large number of component systems at different levels of organization.

Plexus Institute What is happening in that mysterious space between people who discover they have fine interpersonal chemistry? Suzanne Dikker, a cognitive neuroscientist at New York University, hopes dancing holds clues. She is using dance to investigate human brainwave synchronization and learn how it can happen. "NeuroTango" was hosted recently by the Greater New York City Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience as part of its Brain Awareness Week. It was also an opportunity for Dikker to get pairs of tango dancers to wear EEG headsets to measure their brain waves as they danced and thought about dancing. A Scientist.com story by Eli Chen describes Dikker's experiment.
